Beaches closed as huge 4m waves hit Gold Coast

When I woke up this morning and heard the ocean pounding, I couldn’t resist heading over the hill to the point at Burleigh Heads, one of the best vantage points on the Gold Coast to a decent swell rolling in. While the ocean is well and truly out of bounds for swimmers and families today, with some of the biggest waves to hit our coastline in years, experienced surfers are being treated to some seriously amazing waves. Here’s Burleigh Heads firing on all cylinders this morning.
